There's so much derision and bemusement in this post. I need an exfoliating spa treatment and a massage.

Any way you can switch to a higher deductible policy with lower premiums?

In fact they just did a review of documents and said I was eligible for tax credits. This is someone who has gross of approx. $48k per year and net income profit/loss of 29k. There is now way in hell I can afford $859. So now I find myself in limbo whilst everything is reviewed. I cannot afford to pay the $859 for this month's premiums. I have grace period of 30 days and if premium is not paid by 6/30/18 I lose coverage. Appeals can take up to 90 days. I have asked for expedited appeal but who knows if it will be granted. If I do have to pay the $859 then I will have to go without insurance as I simple cannot afford it. Venting done..
I'm of the opinion that one is better off without insurance. If you need hospitalization use emergency room, claim no insurance and negotiate the bill lower. Than go on a payment plan. Don't sweat the small stuff.

And how do you pay for ongoing care? An ER only has to stabilize you by law and then can ask for up front payment for further care.
